Fresno State's Strategic Priorities: Priority Three
Align our physical and technological infrastructure to support a sustainable and welcoming campus environment.
We measure progress and success through the completion of projects and initiatives as prioritized by an updated physical master plan that supports the strategic plan and student success initiatives.
Campus Deferred Maintenance and Improvements
Since Fall 2013, Fresno State has invested a total of $95,429,027 in capital related projects, both new construction and capital renewal and renovation. Some notable projects include our updated electrical infrastructure, the Physical Therapy and Intercollegiate Athletic Building (PTIA), the Jordan Agricultural Research Center (JARC), lecture room and laboratory modernizations, HVAC updates, and repairs to underground utility infrastructure (i.e. hot water, natural gas, storm and sewer lines). This year we expect a total of $26,235,495 in major infrastructure projects, many of which are currently underway including the Student Health Center, North and South Gym Modernization, and the Equestrian Locker Room. Our future facility project needs total approximately $534 million in modernizing our classrooms and academic buildings, improving campus parking lots, and the ongoing underground utility infrastructure improvements as well as new facilities.
